Football Drill Demonstration

Description

Player 1 starts the drill of by passing the ball to the wide player. The wide player then crosses the ball into the box on their first touch for both the attacking players to run onto and attack (near and far post runs).

Immediately after the two strikers have headed for goal the opposite wide player then delivers in another cross into the box.

After the second cross players swap roles (crossers join the queue and the attackers become the two next crossers).

Coaching points

Focus on the timing of runs into box, player and ball should arrive at the same time (no waiting for the cross!)

The attackers should use their runs to get across defenders (don't just run in a straight line - it's easy to mark!)

Strikers should remain switched on and alert to the second ball in the box.

Progression:

Bring in a defender inside the box in a 2 vs 1.
